What is Benzene?
Benzene is a chemical that can be found in gasoline and other products such as glues, paints, cleaners, detergents and it is also one of the most commonly used chemical in a wide range of industrial applications throughout the United States.
Benzene has been linked to cancer and other serious health problems. Exposure of low to moderate levels of benzene can cause:
- Rapid heart rate

- Even Death
Non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma (NHL)
Benzene is linked to Non-Hodgkin Lymphoma. Non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma is a blood cancer that is associated with workplace exposure to cancer-causing chemicals, such as benzene. Every year, approximately 70,000 people in the United States are diagnosed with this cancer, and many cases are caused by benzene exposure.
Workers in industries that make or use benzene are exposed to this chemical the most. Companies are required to protect workers from unsafe benzene exposure. However, workers are still working in unsafe conditions, where benzene is prevalent.
Some workers who were exposed to benzene and were later diagnosed with cancer like Non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma have earned million-dollar settlements for their suffering. So call today to discuss whether there may be compensation for your benzene related injuries.
